Interview with Daphne Wysham, co-director of the Institute for Policy Studies’ Sustainable Energy and Economy Network, conducted by Scott Harris
As the 17th Conference of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Durban, South Africa concluded on Dec. 11, many environmental activists were disappointed with the results, but relieved that the talks hadn’t collapsed. With the 1997 Kyoto protocol treaty on global warming set to expire, the conference in Durban was tasked with negotiating an agreed-upon path toward developing a new international treaty that will control greenhouse gas emissions.

Interview with Henry Waxman, ranking Democrat on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, conducted by Melinda Tuhus
 
U.S. Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., has served in the House for 36 years, and says he's never seen such assaults on public health and the environment as are happening this year in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives. Waxman, who chaired the House Energy and Commerce Committee from 2007 until 2011, is now the ranking Democrat on the panel. He says this year alone, Republicans have introduced 170 bills to weaken environmental laws, especially the Clean Air Act.

National Lawyers Guild Seeks Files on Federal Role in Police Suppression of Occupy Wall Street Movement
Interview with Heidi Boghosian, executive director of the National Lawyers Guild, conducted by Scott Harris
In the 10 weeks since the original Occupy Wall Street protest encampment was founded in New York City’s Zuccotti Park, the movement has spread to hundreds of other outposts across the U.S. and the world. The message of activists – condemning corporate greed, economic inequality and the corrupting influence of money in politics – has resonated with many Americans who are suffering under high unemployment, a record number of mortgage foreclosures and dimming prospects for the future.

Death Penalty Opponents Must Also Fight Racism in U.S. Criminal Justice System
Excerpt of speech by Akinwole-Bandele, senior community advocate, NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, recorded and produced by Melinda Tuhus
The controversial September execution of Troy Davis in Georgia raised the profile of the death penalty in the U.S. and the fight to abolish it. Davis was executed after spending 20 years on death row for the killing of an off-duty police officer, a crime for which he maintained his innocence to the end. Opponents of the execution pointed out that there was no physical evidence linking Davis to the murder; witnesses recanted their initial testimony, and there were many doubts about how the state handled the case.

Egypt's Second Popular Uprising Targets Military's Hold on Power
Interview with Seif Da’Na, associate professor of sociology and international studies at the University of Wisconsin, conducted by Scott Harris
 
When tens of thousands of Egyptians gathered in Cairo’s Tahrir Square last spring demanding the ouster of U.S.-supported dictator Hosni Mubarak, the nation’s armed forces played a decisive role in forcing Mubarak to resign on Feb. 11. When Mubarak ended his 30-year reign of power, it fell to Egypt’s Supreme Council of the Armed Forces to organize the nation’s transition to democracy. Initially, the military promised a six-month transition period, after which they would step aside to make way for civilian rule.
